Hello Davide,

Thank you for the feedback!

Generally speaking, the idea is that the AxCrypt-user essentially has a one-to-one mapping to the Windows user. So, if you’re logged on to Windows, you already know what you have encrypted. Also, it’s never supposed to be a secret just what is encrypted.

Given all this, there is one thing that I’ve debated a bit, and that’s that we show the plain text file names in the recent files list. The decision to do so, is based on the above assumption on the relation between the Windows user and the AxCrypt user. In the file system, the plain text file names are actually encrypted using local Windows encryption which is based on the Windows log in credentials.
